Faculty & Staff Spotlight
Director of Respiratory Therapy
Adrienne has been a healthcare professional for the past 15 years. Upon graduating from WSCC in 2006, she never imagined that her career would lead her right back to Washington State to become the Respiratory Therapy Program Director. Beyond the typical classroom instruction setting, Adrienne incorporates many hands-on activities in her lesson plans such as Escape Rooms and other simulation style events to prepare students with real-life situations that may occur during their career. Her hopes for the future are that local healthcare employers will continue to see a degree from Washington State Community College as a benchmark for well qualified and dedicated job candidates who are committed to excellent patient care.
